Blur lead singer Damon Albarn wrote this. It was part of a new category of music in England called “Indie-dance,” a combination of dance and alternative music that many bands were attempting.
This was the first Blur song produced by Stephen Street. Street had previously worked with The Smiths and would continue working with Blur.
This was Blur’s second single in England and first in the US. They tried to break into America by touring there in 1992, but it was a disaster.
After recording it as a demo, Blur thought of “There’s No Other Way” as being nothing more than an eventual B-side. Their management however was convinced about the potential of the song as forced the band to release it as the main single.>>
